I have a strong beard and need to shave Daily. I use Vintage SE/Injectors and also AC/SE Razors such as the Hawk. I use the Schick Prolines and find them to operate smoothly.I have the Colonial General and RazoRock Hawk 2. I'm finding it a challenge to source a smooth blade, efficient enough to cut my wiry/coarse/dense three or four day beard, without causing me ingrown hairs 48 hours later. My skin is so sensitive, using the Schick Proline P-30 blade in both aforementioned razors caused me too much irritation, even though the Colonial General is a milder razor than the RazoRock Hawk 2.
I do have a few more blades to try, but I'm unsure whether they'd be smoother than the Schick Proline P-30 or not. Of the following AC blades (yes I appreciate YMMV), which would be more efficient compared to the Schick Proline P-30 , and which, if any, would be smoother?
Kai | Captain Sharpblade
Kai | Captain Original
Feather | Pro Light Blade
Hi mpf9ret. I understand why you'd suggest less pressure. I've been wet shaving for a long time, and I allow the weight of the razor to shave me. Of lighter/literally weightless razors, the slightest of touches. But I'm unable to shave on a daily basis. Only twice a week, as my skin is funny sensitive.I have a strong beard and need to shave Daily. I use Vintage SE/Injectors and also AC/SE Razors such as the Hawk.

What other Razors do you use and do they cause you problems too.I suspect that you may be using too much pressure on the Razor during a Shave, with a good lather you should barely feel the Razor on your skin.
Hi Satanfriendly. May I ask which Kai Captain are you referring to?I find the Kai Captain to be the most suitable for my skin and a nicely balance in its approach. I just don't get on with the likes of the Schicks and Feathers and found them trying to be too sharp which rather unbalanced the feel of of both the Hawk and the General.
